Public Access T.V. is excited to share “Sudden Emotion” off forthcoming album Never Enough, out September 30, 2016 on Cinematic. The garage band successfully nabbed the attention of NME early on, with the outlet singing their praises after uploading just one song to SoundCloud. The quartet was declared “New York City’s hottest new band” by the extremely influential outlet. Check out the video and track here.
The band is hot off of Bonnaroo and Governor’s Ball Festivals- all before even releasing their first album. In addition, both NME, and Entertainment Weekly declared the group one of the “buzziest” bands at SXSW this past year. Extremely high praise for a festival boasting thousands of artists!
The group played their first live show at the legendary East Village bar Niagara, to a packed crowd of NYC press, who’s who, it girls, and record label representatives. Before anyone could pin them down they headed to England to hone their sound. Better still, they toured under the fake band name “The iLL Herbs.” Regardless of touring under a pseudonym, the tour was a smashing success, culminating in their performance at The Great Escape Festival in Brighton.
Then, in March 2015, while on tour in California, the band flicked on the TV to see live pictures of their Manhattan loft on every single news channel. Their home was on fire from a gas explosion and had collapsed into rubble. “We wrote there, rehearsed, recorded, lived, everything,” says John. “It was home…and then it was completely gone.”
Demoralized and thousands of miles from NYC, PATV did the only thing they could think of. They stayed out on the road. As John says: “We told our agent to book as many gigs as possible – because we didn’t want to deal with the reality of the situation. We actually had nowhere to go.”
That chain of events set PATV on an entirely new and fruitful path. Among those frantic gig bookings were slots on European festivals, UK house parties, and dates with The Strokes, FIDLAR, Palma Violets, and Hinds, with many more big things to come for the group! Check out the band at one of the live dates listed below!
